Lots of hot lights... 1950s hoover special pantsuit? wayward eyeballs! coughing and phlegm spewing! Get your popcorn and call your time! 1 - 90

    I wanted to poke everyone into a small bit of local action. I also ask that you spread this to others, asking them to do the same. What I'm asking is for you to take one minute out of your schedule and call your local police or sheriffs office (non-emergency line, of course) and let them know that in the face of all the anti-police rhetoric, violence directed at officers, and riots focused on law enforcement (encouraged by the WH and the BLM)... let them know that the VAST majority of this country stands behind them and supports them. It's...

    CBS 6 News Albany | May 24, 2015
    this is bouncing around facebook today. confirmed as real by the gm @ cbs 6 news in albany. they will have a story about it tonight this seems to be more of the same as ferguson and baltimore. agitators paid $5k+/mon to spread civil unrest like the compton riots in the summer of '68 the part that jumped out for me was: 'if our FUNDING goes well' spread the word to police, fire, and any other govt workers in uniform. stay vigilant, even at home (more so then normal).

    When written, the United States Constitution took a step beyond other constitutions in how it defined the rights of the people. Most countries bestow rights onto its citizens and inevitably would take them away. The US Constitution went further to define liberty and its source. As such, the founders RECOGNIZED our Rights as preexisting naturally having been bestowed upon us by our Creator. This was a significant break from the established governing mindset. All of a sudden, people had Rights that the government could not control... as they didn't bestow them. The brilliance of the Constitution was to take the...

    We've all heard of sanctuary cities and how they protected illegals from federal laws. How we have states that legalize drugs even though they are illegal under federal law. Well how about a sanctuary city to protect us from run-away taxation? abortion mills? the homo agenda? rampant federal spending? (i have no idea how to stop them from spending, though maybe limit the amount contributed by the city to the fed)

    Case of young man tied to wall sparks national debate in Netherlands (CNN) -- A Dutch documentary about a mentally ill and potentially dangerous 18-year-old has prompted lawmakers in the Netherlands -- amid national outrage -- to re-examine the treatment of those in psychiatric care. The documentary, which was produced by the Lutheran-run Evangelical Broadcasting Company and aired on public television Tuesday, followed Brandon van Ingen, a patient at a mental hospital in Ermelo. Since 2007, van Ingen has spent part of his days tethered to a wall due to the danger he poses to others, according to State Secretary...

    Self | Nov 11, 2010 | Sten
    I do not understand why the govt insists on taxing corporations, I mean beyond the basic "they just want the money" reason. Let's say a corporation has $10m in sales... pays the various salaries and expenses necessary.... Then pushes some chunk to distribution (the shareholders)... All of which gets taxed normally... Leaving $2m in the corporate bank account. At that point, the govt wants 40-50% or more. I don't understand why. They say because the evil rich need to pay their fair share. But their fair share was paid from the distribution tax. The remaining money actually belongs to no...

    this video was recently posted here on FR to be cheered as a victory for the little guy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FSIFzKNj10E i felt the subject deserves its own thread for discussion on implications regarding progressive taxation. the gist of the case was the government taking private property from one individual and giving it to another. the courts found this to be unconstitutional and ruled in the favor of Randy the mechanic. the money you earn is also private property. redistribution of wealth is the mechanism of confiscating that property to be given to others by the government. how is redistribution of wealth...

    over the passed couple of years, i have become more and more worried about the state of our country. in particular, the size of the debt and the speed at which it has been increasing. and that speed has been increasing most recently with no end in sight. if this continues, as it did with the USSR, there is no doubt the country will cease to exist in its current form. here are the basic facts as of 2009: gross domestic product: $14,000 b national debt as of today: $13,000 b annual federal receipts: $2,105 b congressional budget: $3,518 b...

    I am under assault, directly from my government and the president, due to belonging to a small minority. The president and congress has vilified my minority in the press repeatedly, and is pushing laws to impoverish us and push us out of our homes. In response, I am wondering if I can apply for political asylum from the US to Great Britain? I am part of the vilified 5% of the population that makes over $150k/yr. Our members include the AIG execs which have been harassed on their property, molested in markets and have had their property confiscated without due...

    i believe it has been shown there is an ongoing, nationwide conspiracy attempting to steal the election for Obama. forget the news media, that's advertising... nothing truly illegal about that, just disingenuous. i'm talking about ACORN. yes, the FBI is investigating ACORN in over 12 states. but on tuesday, if this is truly happening, there will be thousands of ACORN operatives going to the polls to vote as someone else. if the FBI actually wanted to get to the bottom of this, while also helping to sure up the elections, they could attempt to nab these people as they go...

    I have not heard it mentioned anywhere on any talk radio or MSM show and it's driving me crazy. I just keep thinking they will be walking away with millions without so much as a red mark on their report card. Well, I've had enough. I suggest we should push for a REQUIREMENT to submit for a full and IMMEDIATE audit, to be completed within a short 3-6 month window, of any corporation/organization that wishes to partake in the bailout. Guidelines for penalties should be well established by now, and charges should be sought against any violators. People should call...

I have made an effort not to overlap stories, so they should all signify a unique event. note the dates and...
